Turn one was a nailbiter. The Germans came on hard and we're very aggressive, but the Senegalese and their French supports seemed to come on just at the right moment despite the Stuka attack and Nazi shabby trick. The Senegalese also rolled lots of 5s which really help to end the turn and end those dreadful Stuka strikes.
|Turn 2 began with the Germans exploiting the open right flank of the Senegalese, with a clear path to another deployment point. Again a Senegalese groups de combat deployed into close combat.|
|A bloody fight. Senegalese are aggressive and aren't penalized for moving.|
|Germans got the worst of it with a pinned team and wounded junior leader. This hurt German force morale now down to 3. Ouch!!|
|Senegalese win but are down to four men. The last fresh shutzen squad moves in for the kill.|
|Senegalese pull back to find some cover|
|Shutzen moving into village with little to oppose them. One four man gdc and a pinned gdc on the other end of town. There's another weak gdc in the town but is facing Germans on the other side.|
|If shutzen can get the pinned Senegalese to break it might turn the game. Maybe get close enough for handgrenatten.|
|French motorcycle team moves to engage small shutzen squad in center of the village. Germans move an HMG team to engage them. Eventually they eliminate the shutzen team but not any of their leaders, both senior and junior.|
|Get and finally get a CoC die but their morale is at 1.|
|Small Senegalese Gdp emerges from the house to put more fire on the shutzen.|
|Germans decide to charge the four Senegalese and their leader. If they can win and knock out a leader they can turn the tide.|
|Not going the Germans way. Almost eliminate the Senegalese Gdp but their leaders were impervious all game.|
|Germans forced to retest and junior leader wounded. Gemans morale has broken.|
|Arial photo. Senegalese still hold the town, but Germans took a deployment point andf won the final combat would have cleared 2/3 of the board and exited the last shutzen squad, thus winning the game. Very close.|
So that ended my solo warmup for Little wars. Now I'm working on my scenarios and get a few playtest done as well.
Thanks for looking.
